The United States Department of Transportation’s (US DOT) Research and Innovative Technology Administration’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center), under the direction of the US DOT Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Office of Research and Development (R&D), is conducting a Trespass Prevention Research Study (TPRS) in the city of West Palm Beach, Florida. The main objective of this research is to demonstrate potential benefits, including documenting best practices and lessons learned, of implementation and evaluation of trespass prevention strategies on the rail network in West Palm Beach, Florida and all of its rights-of-way. This technical paper will describe and provide the most up-to-date results from this study, which is beginning its second year of a three year study period. The cumulative results of the trespass prevention strategies will be analyzed to better inform the determination of areas of potential risk, develop solutions to prevent and minimize risk exposure and implement successful countermeasures in the future. Preliminary analysis from the WPB corridor trespass prevention activities are described in this technical paper. The ultimate objective of the research is to aid in the development of national recommendations or guidelines for reducing trespass-related incidents and fatalities.
